Its the one near the fuel rail. It has two small coolant lines connected to it.

Should be bolted to the TB on the passenger's side.

so i cleaned that out, and have the new CAI, and i still get bogging down problems, gonna change the fuel filter next.

Maybe it is a strain on the alternator?

I do not see how the alternator could possibly affect this. Are you seeing you lights dimming down when this happens? Anything electrical related which would leadyou to believe the alternator is affected?

If it's bogging, you might also look at the mechanical timing and ignition timing.

disregard my last couple posts....

Im so dumb, i was low on gas and that was causing the bogging... I forgot about gas... since i dont have a gas meter right now and the car has been idling in the driveway a lot while i tuned the stereo and PC, so even though i was low on miles the gas was empty... lesson learned.

@ 4$ a gallon, how could i forget to fill up...

Here at 0.45$/gal, I still see a lot of people get stuck on the highway because they run out of gas. How much more if it was 4$.
